Re: New member

Hi all - I am new here, an almost 59 year old female. I found out I have one copy of the APOE4 gene, as determined by 23 and Me, 9 or 10 years ago. Since then, my father died, not from dementia but he did have dementia (not sure if it was Alzheimer's, as he was never officially diagnosed). My 83 ye...

Re: AHEAD 3-45 STUDY CLINICAL TRIAL (LECANEMAB - BAN 2401)

Hi, everyone I just discovered this forum today and am excited to read through all the posts. I have been in the trial for three years, and have an older sister who is also in the study. Two of our sisters did not have enough amyloid to qualify. I probably am getting the placebo, since my only side...

Re: Cognitive decline and rheumatoid arthritis, methotrexate

My dad (79) was diagnosed with MCI about 3 months ago (Changes in hippocampus and bleeding). Dont know APOE status yet. After talking to a doctor who practices the Bredesen protocol, we think his methothrexate medicine that he gets for his rheumatoid arthritis (RA) can potentially be a contributing...

Re: 44 Years Old, 4/4

Hi all, thank you for having me! I am a 44 year male from Minnesota. My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at the age of 58, almost 14 years ago. It was hard to watch her progression on the disease, and I knew it was something I wanted to avoid. I lived a (mostly) healthy lifestyle with plenty o...

Re: New and scared 3/4

Hi - About a week ago I found out that I am 3/4. Been a little bit of a rollercoaster but I knew it was a possibility so have started making changes suggested here and elsewhere and had been kind of settling into this. Tonight I registered for the APT Webstudy and took the tests. My CFI was 8 and t...
